SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:47 No había entonces rey en Edom; presidente había en lugar de rey.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 22:47 Verse 47. There was no king in Edom] It is plain that the compiler of this book lived after the days of Jehoshaphat, in whose time the Edomites revolted; see 2 Kings viii. 22. David had conquered the Edomites, and they continued to be governed by deputies, appointed by the kings of Judah, till they recovered their liberty, as above. This note is introduced by the writer to account for Jehoshaphat's building ships at Ezion-geber, which was in the territory of the Edomites, and which showed them to be at that time under the Jewish yoke.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 47. There was then no king in Edom, a deputy was king .] Which had been the case from the times of David, who subdued Edom, and placed garrisons in it, and governors over it, ( 2 Samuel 8:14) and continued through the reign of Jehoshaphat, unto the times of his son, under whom the Edomites revolted, and set up a king of their own, ( 2 Kings 8:20), with a view to which this is observed, as also to account for it how Jehoshaphat could build ships in Eziongeber, which was in the land of Edom, of which in the next verse, because the whole country was governed by a viceroy, or deputy, under him.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 41-50 - Jehoshaphat's reign appears to have been one of the best, both as to piety and prosperity. He pleased God, and God blessed him.
